WE150 & WE170 Wheeled Excavators
Precision and stability in a compact package for urban jobsites
The two models at the lower end of the range, WE150 Compact and WE170 Compact, are more suitable for the Infrastructure and Residential industries where urban jobsites often require the ability to work in very tight spaces.
The new triple articulation boom with the positioning cylinder moved to the front lightens the weight of the attachment and optimises weight distribution. This results in outstanding lifting capacity, smooth operation and outstanding stability.
New Holland claims that these models offer the shortest tail swing radius in the industry for this category.
They claim that this, together with the new boom, gives these two models the capability to offer top performances in the tightest jobsites.
The new E10SR mini excavator is the smallest in the New Holland range of mini-excavators. Although extremely compact, the new model would appear to offer similar powerful digging performance of its predecessor coupled with the ability to work in even tighter spaces with exceptional precision.
The E10SR is designed to work effectively in the tightest spaces and ideal for digging along walls, with the hydraulic swing offset boom, minimal swing radius.
This capability has been further enhanced by further reduction of the overhang to zero on the right swing and just 38mm on the left swing, down from 39mm and 82mm respectively in the previous model.
The adjustable crawler width enables the E10SR to pass through openings as narrow as 900mm when set at the minimum width setting of 750mm — the smallest in this class — and ensures stability at work when set at the 980mm maximum width.
The crawler’s width is easy to adjust with a control located at the bottom of the seat.
Productivity is further enhanced by the powerful digging performance and wide operating range, with 1,750mm digging depth, 3,300mm digging reach and 3,160mm digging height.
The extremely compact size of the E10SR makes it easy to transport. The improved dozer approach angle of 30 degrees allows the machine to crawl on and off the truck platform without hitting the loading ramps. The new model also benefits from improvements to further enhance the machine’s serviceability.
The latest addition to New Holland’s Waste Handling product offering is the W170B wheel loader in waste handling configuration. Made in the Lecce (Italy) factory, it features extra protection to ensure maximum safety and productivity in the demanding environments typical of waste management facilities.
High capacity buckets up to 3m³ and wear resistant tyres are available to meet the specific requirements of waste handling operations. High tipping buckets and a long boom attachment enable customers to deal with the exceptional dump heights required in this industry.
Also on display
Also on show was the F156.7 grader (photo below) on which the cab has been significantly redesigned to offer operators more space and legroom and a cab door that folds back 180º to provide easier access. A new right-hand console has been developed to improve the control of gearshift and engine throttle and the seat adjustment has been increased to fit the operator’s preferred driving posture.
In the centre of the large stand, New Holland emphasised its R&D capabilities, with emphasis on those related to the engine developed by Fiat Powertrain. The engine on display was a model that will be used with a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system to achieve Tier 4 standards. In equipment using this technology, the engine will be tuned for maximum efficiency and performance and the SCR after-treatment system will reduce nitrogen oxides produced by the high combustion temperatures.
